Timelapse Dolly Test 2: Lake Tahoe

September 09, 2010

Dolly Test #2 - Lake Tahoe

Two weeks ago I took the time-lapse dolly up to Lake Tahoe for a weekend. This was the first time I’ve used it in the ‘wild’. It was quite the learning experience. Fought the weather for most of the weekend (50 mph gusts and mixed thunderstorms). The last shot involved following GPS coords to an unmarked trail off the highway, a sketchy hike with all of the equipment, a FIRE on the motor control after a short caused by said rough hike, running out of card space twice (bad planning) and finally ended when the camera battery died. Soooo that said, I had trouble getting enough shots for a decent edit but I took a crack at it anyhow.

Make sure you watch it with HD turned on and in full screen otherwise there are some bit you’ll miss.
